Along the pristine waters of the Niangua River, banked by lush, green foliage and colorful, mature trees, visitors and locals leisurely float in kayaks, rafts, and canoes supplied by the team at Riverfront Campground & Canoe. The staff is eager to share its passion for the outdoors and the splendor of the Missouri Ozarks with visitors to their more than 200 acres of scenic campsites along Niangua's riverfront. The sites welcome families and friends to pitch a tent or pull up in their RVs for a tranquil experience hiking nature trails, swimming, tubing, and sleeping under the stars to the soundtrack of a rushing river. To assure campers enjoy a comfortable stay, the grounds are equipped with hot showers and bathrooms, as well as a convenience store stocked with snacks, beverages, bait, tackle, and Bigfoot repellent.

Though its calm flow and smaller volume make it an ideal venue for kayaking, it's not unusual for paddlers traversing the Little Piney River to go an entire trip without seeing another human being. Unlike destination rivers choked by tourists carted in by the busload, the Little Piney offers serenity in its seclusion, whether for lazy floats along its banks or fishing. Blue Heron Boatworks caters to all aspects of a successful kayaking trip, from shuttling guests to their starting points to politely encouraging the river to reverse its flow for visitors who drop their paddles on the shore.

Upon moving to Branson in the early 1990s, Don and Lawanna Stuck spent their leisure time hunting, fishing, and paddling the White River’s waterways. Drawing upon their intimate knowledge of Branson’s waterways, they opened White River Kayaking & Outdoors on July 4, 2012. Equipped with rental paddles and life jackets, their customers can navigate standard kayaks, tandem kayaks, or fishing kayaks along Lake Taneycomo, Table Rock Lake, or Bull Shoals Lake while marveling at the surrounding Ozark Mountains. Staffers drop guests off at several launch locations on each lake, and pick guests up at the conclusion of their float. White River Kayaking & Outdoors also rents out bicycles, which visitors can take around Branson’s parks and trails or pedal across the lake to combine two sports during a triathlon.

From their perch on drifting kayaks, visitors explore Lake Taneycomo or Table Rock Lake, floating past geese and groundhogs who chitter on the banks of the man-made lakes. Twenty-seven miles of placid waters snake around foliage that hides hiking trails, deer, and even bald eagles, and guests can traverse the surface in 3- or 5-mile stretches as guides point out the wildlife.
